MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon Gulch wildfire is burning within several miles of where a pack of wolves lives in southern Oregon, but the state Department of Fish and Wildlife says they are not threatened.

Wildlife biologist Mark Vargas in the Rogue District office says OR-7, his mate and three pups should have little trouble skirting the flames and smoke.

He told Mail Tribune (https://bit.ly/1otNpxw ), “These animals are survivors.”

Vargas says the wolves are not living now in a den. They change “rendezvous zones” where they leave the pups while hunting. The pack has been tracked around southeast Jackson and western Klamath counties.
